Top 30 Sci-Fi Tanks! Number 8!

And a happy Wednesday to all of you folks! Counterfett here, and since I managed to go a whole week without making any of these posts for scheduling, this is the nearest to publication that I have actually written any of these (even the first post was scheduled more than three days in advance! Being back to work and my other projects have sure sucked the time away! But nevertheless, today's entry is surely one long awaited.
 #8: Land Raider

Hailing from the grim dark future of the Warhammer 40k setting, the Land Raider is unquestionably one of the most iconic vehicles of the Space Marines, both loyal and traitor. Able to carry a swarm of heavily armored troops in inviolable safety due to its thick plating, and able to strike down lesser vehicles due to its Godhammer pattern lascannons, the Land Raider is a mighty tank indeed.

Decreed during the heresy by the Emperor to be used exclusively by the Space Marines, the lumbering tanks, while few in number, are cherished and holy symbols of the might of the Imperium in general, and the Space Marines in particular. Other varieties of Land Raiders make changes to the loadout in favor of more troops, anti infantry, or siege breaking work, but in any incarnation, a Land Raider is a force to be reckoned with!
